This post could be useful for bands and people buying music online. We accept that the majority of Internet users is unable or not willing to pay for mp3 downloads, that’s why we offer free downloads as well. But why would anyone buy downloads then? Number one: paid downloads are better quality, number two: you support the band.

You can read a Bankrupt interview on the Czech music website Steambuild, just scroll down for the English version. It was done by Jan from the punk rock band Z Ničeho Nic, who also invited us to play with them in the Czech Republic in January. We said yes, of course. By the way, we really appreciate gig invitations and interview requests, and you can always contact us with your awesome offers in e-mail or via social networks using the side tabs.
Our 6-song 2009 CD-EP Razor Wires And Neon Lights is now freely downloadable in 128K mp3 format in our webshop and on last.fm. In the webshop, you need to register, put the download in the cart, and then click through the checkout process. If you like it, you may consider buying the 320K mp3 download, or the CD version.
It was high time to get rid of the old static website and move over to WordPress, so here it is. The best thing about this is that we can post as much stuff here as we want, and the blog feed will simultaneously update our MySpace, Last.fm, Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr sites with each post. Our posts can be shared or bookmarked with the Meebo bar at the bottom, and yes, we have the Facebook Like button as well after each post. Now we just need to post some interesting stuff here, and this website will come to life again. Who knows, we may even get some comments, or messages on the brand new board.
The other great improvement around here is the webshop. Finally, we have an easy-to-use, convenient solution to offer instead of the tiny PayPal widget. The new shop can calculate shipping cost according to package weight and your location, so ordering has got cheaper, and there are also more shipping and payment options. Try it!
